Princess Alexis (and Bobby)

Wahoo!!  We are all registered for this...

yes, Bobby will be a princess too.  I really wanted to run my first half with him.

So, next February we get to go to Disney again!  I just love Disney.  We love to eat there!  Our favorite place to eat is Jiko in Animal Kingdom, we had an awesome meal there!  Can't wait to go back!

Training has been going along, slow but steady.  It's still so daunting to think that I will be running for like 3 hours.  Getting out to run here is pretty tricky.  It's super hot.  Like we have had multiple heat advisories.  Since I run with Jack, I won't take him out if it's that hot.  And since Bobby doesn't get home till after dark most nights, my running gets thrown aside.  But going to NY for 2 weeks will be great cause I will be able to run every day!  And my mom is a huge runner, so I can get out with her.

Part of the registration process involves picking your favorite princess.  Easy for me, I love Sleeping Beauty, but when I asked Bobby who he wanted to be, he said "I don't want to be a princess."  Well tough cookies, cause it makes me choose one.  So who did I choose for Bobby?  Snow White.  Bobby has all these soldiers that follow him around and check in with him, so I thought that was like Snow White and her dwarfs.

One of the best parts about this race is that my two best friends from high school (and their husbands) are going to race it with us!  I see one of them a ton cause she only lives about two hours away from me, but the other lives in Maine and we always miss each other when visiting our hometown.  It will be so great to have a weekend (and in Disney) together.  I can't wait!  Also, I will get to meet a bunch of other military wives who will be racing! 

Oh and along the running topic, Savannah just got the approval for a Rock and Roll Marathon!  It will be November 5-6 2011.  Too bad we probably won't be here anymore.  Maybe that will be a little vacay back...

So wish me luck on my training!  I'll keep you updated!  And of course any and all running advice/tips is/are greatly appreciated.



Yay!! I'm so excited that you guys will be there! I don't have any advice as far as training, but I've been struggling with getting my runs in lately too...


I'm running the Disney Princess Half too! :D

As far as advice, I'd say to just take it slow! They say to increase mileage by no more than 10% each week.


I am going too!!

Dave and Ashley

I'm hoping to be there too!!! I'm doing Couch to 5K right now and working my way up. My favorite princess is Sleeping Beauty <3 xx
